ERA PerMed Joint Transnational Call
ERA PerMed is an ERA-NET Cofund, supported by 32 partners of 23 countries and cofunded by the European Commission (EC). To align national research strategies, promote excellence, reinforce the competitiveness of European players in Personalised Medicine (PM), and enhance the European collaboration with non-EU countries, 31 funding organisations have agreed to launch the third Joint Transnational Call for research projects in PM. This represents the second of three additional calls non-cofunded by the EC. The funding organisations participating in this call particularly wish to promote innovative interdisciplinary collaboration and to encourage translational research proposals. The available budget for this call is 27 Mio € (approx.).
With its third transnational call ERA PerMed fosters research and innovation activities that build close linkages between basic biomedical research, clinical research, physical sciences, bioengineering, bioinformatics and biostatistics, epidemiology, socio-economic research, as well as research on the integration of PM into clinical practice and on ethical, legal and social implications across the participating countries and beyond.
The overarching goal is to improve disease prevention and disease management, based on broader and more efficiently characterised and defined patient stratification, diagnostics and tailored treatment protocols. Proposals submitted under this call are expected to demonstrate the applicability of project outcomes to clinical practice and to include research on ethical, legal and socio-economic implications and/or research on the optimisation of health care systems. They may also consider patient and citizen empowerment and training strategies for the different stakeholders in PM.
Submission deadline for pre-proposals: 5 March 2020 (17:00 CET)
Submission deadline for full-proposals: 15 June 2020 (17:00 CEST)
